    "Naming" The device

    I've been poking around in the system settings to no avail.. what I'd like to do is name the device(s) so it shows up more clearly as to what it is in my router.. except for the main PC and the printer via the router, everything else in the house is wireless.. that includes 3 android phones, TF101 Android tablet, kids iPod touch, WDLive box, 2 laptops and a Blackberry.. never realized how much crap was in the house until I made the list.. LOL. When I'm in the backend of the router, I'd like to see names of the android devices rather than a MAC address or the name ANDROID-followed by a string of letters and numbers.. any ideas? PC's and Crackberry and the Touch are named fine.

    I don't know how to change it on the phone, but I 'set' mine by changing the displayed names in my router's control interface. Maybe that will accomplish what you're trying to do?
    Good luck!
